Easy Sausage Quiche is easy to make & devour. We make this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Who would have thought it’d be one of my family’s favorites?!
This Easy Sausage Quiche is a delicious household staple. It’s super fun and easy to bake, especially on cold wintry days! It’s perfect for potlucks, family gatherings, and every meal in between!
My kids seriously love quiche and will eat it for any meal. I only recently discovered this after moving next door to the “Quiche Queen” Jill. She makes quiche all the time for dinner and since my Jersey eats dinner there at least once a week, I have heard rave reviews. Jill being a working, single mom she told me how easy it was for her to make quiche for dinner and that she loves the simplicity of it. Her kids love it too and obviously Jersey does as well.
So I decide to make it as well, first for a breakfast. The leftovers were devoured that day for lunch. That followed with me making quiche once a week since then. Of course with the size of my family, we make two because everyone wants leftovers. And really it is not that much harder to make two that it is one. I really have two meals ready in less than an hour with a prep time total of 20 minutes.
We are now on a quiche streak and we have more of our favorite recipes coming up. But since sausage was the first one we made, well, it’s the first to be shared. If you want to make crust from scratch (totally recommend) then try My Favorite All Butter Pie Crust (from Crazy For Crust).
So cheers to great new neighbors who share their to-go-to meals, their home and making friends that will last a lifetime. So enjoy this Easy Sausage Quiche from our oven to yours. XOXO San
How do you make Easy Sausage Quiche?
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll out pie crust into a pie pan.
Top pie crust with sausage, cheese, and onion.
Mix the eggs and half-and-half in a bowl and pour egg mixture over toppings in the pie crust.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Then reduce heat, leaving the pie in the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for an additional 35 minutes.
When it is done the top of the quiche will begin to turn a nice golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow to sit 5-10 minutes before serving
How do you store quiche?
Once baked, a quiche should be refrigerated.
Leave the cooked quiche in its baking pan and wrap tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Eat within 3-4 days of making.
You can also freeze quiche in an airtight freezer bag.
This will extend the life up to 1-2 months.
My favorite kitchen items below that I use to make this EASY SAUSAGE QUICHE.
MIXING BOWLS: I love having a variety of sizes of mixing bowls. From small to large, I find that having at least 3 bowls of different sizes has been essential in my kitchen. I prefer Pyrex because of its durability.
MEASURING CUPS: Nothing beats a good set of measuring cups that last a long time. I love metal measuring cups because of their durability.
MEASURING SPOONS: I have to have a metal set of measuring spoons on hand. The plastic ones just don’t last long in our house partly due to the garbage disposal.
PIE PAN: You need one of these for the quiche and I prefer a glass pan over metal. One because of how it cooks and two for presentation.

- 1 uncooked pie crust

Roll out pie crust into pie pan.
Top pie crust with sausage, cheese and onion. You can mix the sausage, cheese and onion in a medium mixing bowl and then throw into the pie crust. I prefer to layer it - one less dish to wash.
Mix the eggs and half and half in a bowl with seasonings, and pour egg mixture over toppings in the pie crust.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Then reduce heat, leaving the pie in the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for an additional 35 minutes. When it is done the top of the quiche will begin to turn a nice golden brown.
